A series of structured life-skills camps held during school holiday breaks in Uganda that help girls avoid exploitation, build self-confidence, and explore their dreams for the future.
[Summary by the Amplify Team]
Hi Bettina, Thank you so much for your contact! Tomorrow's program is just linking up with the zonal leaders and the schools leaders of the urban community we are beginning to be working with. We are likely to connect with some of the girls in holidays but we will be basically making contacts with the community while seeking their ideas of how effective we could successfully recruit and select the girls . We think these people will be of great help to us. I will be traveling with the project manager - David Kaggwa. We did this in Tororo with David the past week. Check your inbox, just sent you something related. Will keep you updated. Many thanks! Beatrice
Hi Bettina! Long time! Thank you for your support this far. We are very excited! We are currently working on our final implementation framework, I am happy sharing with you! 2 of the Amplify staffs will visit with us two weeks from now, all exciting! We identified the project manager too, seems like a very experienced passionate person fit for the work. The job description is designed as well, let me know if you would like to throw some thoughts therein. Next week, we will be site mapping the slum community plus get on touch with local leaders and schools and see if we can. identify some girls already ahead of this visit. The camp is proposed to start this December 2014 to January 2015. Preparations will begin as soon as we have concluded our due diligence with Amplify. Would be nice to have your email Bettina, just in case we need to share/ exchange information before posting updates. Thank you so much for keeping in touch. Looking forward to working more with you!
